Room 34 Creative Services, LLC (creator of ICS Calendar) takes privacy seriously. Although we are based in the United States, a large portion of ICS Calendar users are based in Europe, and we strive to create a product that adheres to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) guidelines. We welcome feedback to help us continue to improve our compliance.
User data collection and privacy considerations within the ICS Calendar plugin
Neither ICS Calendar nor ICS Calendar Pro collects any end user data, nor do they include any type of analytics/tracking features.
ICS Calendar does not store any cookies whatsoever. ICS Calendar Pro stores one cookie. The cookie is used solely to “remember” the user’s selection of the month/list toggle, in Month view, if that option is being used. No personal data is collected, and the cookie expires at the end of the browsing session.
ICS Calendar is designed to retrieve calendar event data from external calendar sources and display it within your WordPress website. ICS Calendar caches the retrieved data locally on your web server, for performance. We do not have any access to the retrieved data.
Bear in mind that your source calendar server’s privacy policies may differ from ours, and that your calendars may contain sensitive data. It is your responsibility to manage the calendar content that ICS Calendar retrieves and displays on your website.
Customer data collection and privacy considerations on the ICS Calendar website
The ICS Calendar website (icscalendar.com) uses WooCommerce for order transactions. Payments are processed through Stripe and/or PayPal. Customer data is collected as a part of order transactions and shared with these payment processing partners as needed. Data is retained on the website indefinitely to facilitate ongoing account access and renewals, but can be deleted at customer request. Please use our support form to request deletion of your data. (Be aware that we must retain your data if you are continuing to actively use your product license.)
The ICS Calendar website also uses the Jetpack plugin for various site optimizations, including basic site usage statistics. We do not use Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Facebook Pixel, or any other type of external analytics/tracking tools.
Only the customer data related to the purchase of the ICS Calendar Pro license is collected by our website. We do not have any access whatsoever to the data of users of your website, even when the plugin is active on your site.
